Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: A total of 496 logs from lodgepole pine (Pinus contorts Dougl. ex Loud.) trees killed by the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopk.) were compared with 189 logs from similar live trees. Logs were processed through a stud mill. In most cases lumber recovery from trees dead 1 to 3 years was the same as that from live trees. Less cubic volume was recovered from trees dead 4 or more years. Recovery tables and curves are shown.

Keywords: lumber recovery, lumber yield, dead timber, insect damage (-forest products, lodgepole pine, Pinus contorta, Rocky Mountain area
